Georgia Tech beats Alcorn St 74-50 on Lammers double-double
Four Yellow Jackets score in double figures as Tech scored largest victory margin of the season
ATLANTA (AP) Center Ben Lammers had 12 points and 13 rebounds for his sixth double-double of the season and Georgia Tech routed Alcorn State 74-50 Sunday at McCamish Pavilion.
The 6-foot-10 junior was 5-for-7 from the field and had six offensive rebounds and one blocked shot for the Yellow Jackets, who won their second-straight game. Lammers played only 20 minutes and didn't return to the court for the final 6:39.
Alcorn State (2-7) lost its fifth straight game. The Braves were led by A.J. Mosby with 16 points, including four 3-pointers, and Reginal Johnson with 15 points and five rebounds
Alcorn State was able to hang around for the early part of the first half because of its 3-point success. The Braves were within 18-12 when Denzel Dulin made a 3-pointer with 11:28 left in the first half.
But Georgia Tech responded with a 12-2 run that included back-to-back dunks from Jackson and Lammers, as well as a three-point play from Okogie. The run gave the Yellow Jackets a 30-14 lead with 6:00 left in the half.
Georgia Tech led 39-22 at the half. Alcorn stayed close because of its 3-point success, hitting 6 of 7, and because it scored 11 points off seven Georgia Tech turnovers.
Georgia Tech plays again at home on Tuesday against state-rival Georgia.
Alcorn State is at Grand Canyon on Tuesday.
